ROCKWOOL insulation gets wet: ROCKWOOL insulation is moisture resistant yet vapor permeable. In the event the insulation becomes damp or wet, the insulation, when thoroughly dried, will maintain the original performance characteristics.
ROCKWOOL stone wool insulation does not wick water, which means that any bulk water that contacts the outer surface will drain and not be absorbed into the body of the insulation.
ROCKWOOL products mold resistant: ROCKWOOL products are inorganic which provide no food source for mold to grow. ROCKWOOL products are tested to ASTM C1338 – A Standard Test for Determining Fungi Resistance – and passes with zero fungal growth.
ROCKWOOL products rodent resistant: There is no test method to determine whether or not any product is rodent resistant. ROCKWOOL’s reputation as a rodent-resistant insulation is mainly based on word of mouth and lack of negative feedback from numerous customers who use our products in “cottage country”. That being said, if a certain pest type is a nuisance to your particular area, best practice is to protect the insulation.
ROCKWOOL make blowing wool insulation: ROCKWOOL insulation is only manufactured in batt, board, and pipe forms.
RECYCLED CONTENT: ROCKWOOL insulation is a stone-based mineral fiber insulation comprised of Basalt rock and Recycled Slag. The recycled content in mineral wool is derived from the steel slag.ROCKWOOL products contain between 16% or 40% pre-consumer recycled material dependent on the ROCKWOOL manufacturing facility location.The amount of recycled content is optimized to provide the ideal thermal, acoustic, and fire protection properties from ROCKWOOL products, while still maximizing the recycled content.
Dimensions of the product: ROCKWOOL products are produced to accommodate standard construction practices. Common Sizes are 24 x 48 and 16 x 48 at a variety of thickness depending on product. Larger and custom sizes can be produced however minimum order quantities are usually required.
